This recipe floated around in my head for months before I finally threw it together and I had so many ideas I was nervous that it wasn’t going to turn out.
SUCCESS! 🙌 It’s delicious and a definite change up from my other meal prep recipes I’ve been posting lately. I was over chicken for a while but this is DELICIOUS and I can’t wait for you to try it! 🤤 Make sure you save it for next time you need a new meal prep recipe and tag me in your pictures if you give it a try! I always love to hear when people are making my recipes and what they think-it makes me want to stay creative in the kitchen because I can eat the same thing most days and not get bored. 😉
🔹 7.5 oz rice noodles (you could sub a shiritaki noodle here if you want to lower the carbs)
🔹 16 oz thinly sliced/shredded purple cabbage
🔹 1-12oz bag broccoli slaw
🔹 3-4 sliced green onions
🔹 1T toasted sesame oil
🔹 1T squeeze ginger
🔹 2 cloves minced garlic
🔹 1lb grilled chicken, diced (I used chicken skewers from @costco to make prep even faster)
🔹 1 batch of my lightened up peanut dressing
🔹 Lime wedges (optional)
🔹 Cilantro (optional)
✅ Cook rice noodles in boiling salted water for 4-5 minutes. Strain and place in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process.
✅ Add toasted sesame oil to a large skillet on medium high heat.
✅ Add broccoli slaw, cabbage, garlic, and ginger to the skillet. Sprinkle with salt. Cook until tender crisp about 3 minutes or so using tongs to evenly cook/stir.
✅ Drain rice noodles and place approx 3oz noodles in each of 5 meal prep containers.
✅ Evenly distribute the cooked slaw mix to each meal prep container
✅ Add 3.2oz cooked grilled chicken to each container.
✅ Pour approx. 45g/3T of my lightened peanut sauce to the top of each container.
✅ Sprinkle with cilantro and/or additional green onions.
Shake to combine if you want.
✅ Add a lime wedge to each container for serving.
This meal can be enjoyed cold or hot! Now that the weather’s warmer I’ve been enjoying it cold-it’s great either way.🤩
